This is just so creepy cool. I love how you make these into the frames. Dude you should be working for somebody like Disney or a special arts for movies. Just perfect!

Thanks so much!
I really do have the most fun with the off the wall and darker subjects.
Yeah, sometimes I have to "McGyver" stuff together when it comes to coming up with a new birthday gift for my wife...
I never quite have my mind made up on what I'm going to make her till the day that I start it so that means I have to improvise now and then.
The plumbers putty works great because it hardens so quickly...
Thanks again for the support!
Take care

Believe it or not, this hangs in our bedroom....
We do have non-creepy stuff too.
My wife gets freaky gifts for her birthday cuz it's so close to Halloween.
It's all in good fun!
Thanks again!

Looks seriously awesome. I can just imagine that hanging in some dark hallway. That would give me the heeby-jeebies.

thanks! I always have a blast with my wife's birthday present's. It's fun because I try to get them done in a day or two at the most. I often work through the night cuz I get so excited to give them to her. Thanks for the compliments on the contorted spine. That's one of my favorite parts too. It's nice and tactile as well.
thanks again...

Wonderful work! Even from this angle you can see the 3rd dimension. Great design of the skeleton as well - I'm loving his spine and neck!

Thanks for the feedback...I had a lot of fun with this. I'm really in to all the images from the day of the dead festivals in Mexico so I tried to lean towards that a bit. The spine, bones etc. are plumbers putty while the head is super sculpey. the clothes are shop cloth dipped in uncured casting resin...thanks again...

That's a lot of different materials... that's varied art!

Interesting inspiration. Though I'm glad you didn't make him too happy like most Day of the Dead skeletons, or he wouldn't work as well as he does. I like his sinister atmosphere.

You're welcome :)

Outta curiousity, how much would such a piece cost me?

And, again, you're welcome ;)

actually, I'd have to get back to you on that. this particular piece is a one of a kind that I made for my wife. I will be coming up with some re-producable stuff but need to figure out if I will be molding the frame, along with the sculpture...
We'll be gone to Sausalito for a few weeks and when I get back, I'll be tearing in to stuff.
Thanks for liking it.
Take care,

Thanks so much for this comment and your others...and for the faves as well!
No, we are actually in Colorado, but my wife and I want to move to Sonoma county one of these days.
We've done the Sausalito show for about 7 years in a row but haven't done the last few.
I'll answer your other messages when the dust settles but wanted to get back to you on this one at least...
I've been burning the candle at both ends for the last few months...
Thanks for the kind words and support man!
Take care

I have an 11 year old daughter that I hope will learn the skills and knowledge you have to add to her own already large skill set and experience. Between her mother and I she has been exposed to all the many arts and crafts out there and come up with some of her own. I've been a Bench Jeweler and Metal smith for over 20 years.Thanks for sharing your art.

Sounds like your daughter already has such a great base to start from. How blessed she is to have parents like you.
Thanks again for your kind words and support!
Best to you my friend!

You can get back to me on that, but I doubt I'd like the shipping costs to Europe ;)

No problem...I'll have to show you some pix of some other things I've done that hang on the wall as well. If the shipping is done right, sometimes it can be a lot less costly than what I thought it would be.
Take care,
